Strikeforce presented their “Payback” event tonight in Broomfield, Colorado, which featured a main event of Duane “Bang” Ludwig vs. Sam “The Squeeze” Morgan. Additionally, Frank Trigg took on Falaniko Vitale, Michelle “The Karate Hottie” went up against Tyra Parker, and plenty of local talent entered the cage.

Although Phil Baroni was originally scheduled to compete tonight, he was no longer on the card due to a cut sustained during his impressive win over Olaf Alfonso a few days ago at Palace Fighting Championship 10.

The televised bouts were aired on HDnet and the official results can be found below.
